re: Samsung Galaxy Note II: Visual Tour
Anti-glare screens are significantly dimmer and of course less flashy, literally. We like shiny things. When comparing devices in the store, the one that's shinier gets more attention and more sales. When shopping for a big flat-screen TV, I found myself drawn like a moth to the shiniest displays. I agree, though, glare is a real problem. The brightness factor has also become a sales/marketing feature. A brighter display isn't always better, but the marketing people would like you to think so.
